> One benefit of the "outside interest" section is that you never know what will connect with the reader/propective employer. It's great when you have something in common that's not job-related. You both can relax a little in what can be a stressful situation.

Walter...when you compose the resume, you don't want to include information that "may" connect with the employer. It also may "not" connect and it wasn't necessary that it be included in the first place, and it also may connect in ways that aren't welcome. You
want "sure-things" ...make sure that everything you put in has the best chance of being looked at favorably without chance setting in. Granted, it is out of your control if you include the fact that your were head tech writer for Microsoft and it turns out that
the reader HATES Microsoft.

When you've never held a real job in your profession, you try for anything nomatter how slim the fit with LOTS of verbal explanation afterwards. A resume that has a name on the top and the rest is white paper is never acceptable. However, as soon as you get the
first job with an enployment history, the bagel shop becomes history....unless you are trying for a job at McD's or BurgerKing.
